A transfer station? A manufacturing plant? A conference center?
They're all options locals proposed at a public meeting for the Mandeville Land Use Plan. A plan Bozeman officials say is an opportunity for the city to create jobs and diversify the local economy.
However, officials say they need to hear from the community before they move forward.
"What we need, though, is feedback from the public. What types of businesses would be prime for this type of location?" says Bozeman Economic Development Director Brit Fontenot.
Right now the city is leaning towards an industrial complex- something they say is in line with their efforts to support manufacturing.
"Some of the economic information is coming back supporting that," explains Fontenot.
Yet, some folks have their own ideas.
Nearby homeowner Karin Jennings threw out several.
"This would be potentially a good site to use for some of that storm water treatment and I don't know any of the plans farther upstream, et cetera, but something to keep in mind because everything kind of flows there," says Jennings.
Blitz Soccer Club President Paul Rubright says a sports complex might be the way to go.
"Track, basketball, baseball, all the sports. If you put an indoor facility in, I think you could see a tremendous amount of influx from outside communities coming in for tournaments and that type of thing and then we also have a shortage of outdoor facilities as well," says Rubright.
While the land is zoned as industrial, the city is open to possibilities and continues to welcome public comment.
"It's a very important, significant piece of property that we intend on, at least, exploring to the fullest extent what we can do to maximize the use of," says Fontenot.
